KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Clint Bowyer coveted winning at Kansas Speedway. Well, heck, coveted may be an understatement.
Bowyer, who grew up in Emporia, KS, just over 100 miles from Kansas Speedway, dominated Saturday's Camping World Truck Series race and scored his first victory in any series at the speedway.
"Lot of fun, Lot of fun. To finally be able to do a burnout on the frontstretch in front of that crowd is big," Bowyer said.
Before making it to NASCAR, Bowyer raced at Lakeside Speedway, a dirt track just north of Kansas Speedway.
Bowyer led 124 of the race's 167 laps, and while he was never able to fully shake Johnny Sauter, who finished second, Bowyer had the fastest truck all day.
The win was Bowyer's first in the Truck Series this season in three starts. Previously he finished second at Phoenix (to Kyle Busch) and finished second at Charlotte two weeks ago after being passed for the lead by Busch with eight to go after scraping the wall.
